A tiny kitten has been rescued from the storms of Hurricane Matthew.

The little scamp was brought into Petsmart's Banfield Pet Hospital in North Carolina to be cared for, where she was coddled in a tiny sock jumper to keep her warm.

This news comes to you courtesy of Sarah, an unsuspecting customer, who tweeted the most adorable picture:

When Sarah saw her, she was being shown to a family looking for a new cat.

She was wearing a sock, cut with little pawholes, just to keep her toasty warm.

Unsurprisingly, it's been retweeted about 70,000 times and has more than 120,000 likes.

And the best part?

This adorable little kitty now has a loving new home.

“When I first saw her I had to fight off the temptation to take her home myself,” Sarah told Love Meow. “This kitten was so soft and precious, and the guy's kids were really awed by her.”

I was so happy to see her go with them. They bought this huge and fancy litter box, and they were all extra excited so I think Tube Sock Sweater Kitten is in good hands.

In these dark days of Trump, Brexit and Grey's Anatomy sans McDreamy, Tube Sock Sweater Kitten getting adopted is what we need to see.
